A great chain and delicious Pizza but sometimes the sausage is under cooked. Specify a longer cooking time when ordering Sausage. This is the only one outlet that I have visited that has consistently had this problem.

We ordered from this location while staying at the nearby Embassy Suites. We ordered a deep dish sausage and Pepperoni pizza and 2 Italian beef sandwiches. The food was incredible!! The pizza was so filling, that neither of us could finish 2 slices. We reheated the beef sandwiches the next day, and I have to say that it was the... More

Great take out Chicago style pizza from one of its institutions! If you want deep dish this is the place. We love the Sausage and " The Lou's" Good salads too. The red wine vinegar dressing one of the best!

There are plenty of pizza places, but if you have not had their Italian Beef, baked with mozzarella cheese and peppers, then this is one place in Chicago you have to try.

This is really good Chicago style deep dish pizza. We have tried many of them and found this to be superior to many of the other famous pizzas from Chicago. The crust was crisp around the edges, slightly flaky along the side and firm enough to stand up to the rich filling in the middle. The sauce was not overly... More

Loved this pizza. Delish! The garlic was a little overwhelming, even though we did order garlic as a topping, but the creamy garlic sauce was amazing! I heard the salad is great. We'll get that next time we're in town.

This Pizza is the best ever. In Chicago or anywhere else. I've had it my whole life. It's great. If you like thick you will like this.

This pizza is good but, in my opinion, just okay compared to other Chicago pizzas. The deep dish is surpassed by Giordano's and Pat's Pizza - both have tastier crusts. The thin is surpassed by Pizano's and Father and Son - both are simply tastier. But Lou Malnati's does the trick when you're hungry for pizza. It is the favorite... More

I love their pizzas; have for more years than I care to remember or count pound wise but when I'm in the area I have to have. No one does it like Lou's!

Both the deep dish and thin pizza are very good. We've had the chunky tomato sauce, which most people seem to prefer but the alterative "thin crust" sauce is very good and preferable to those who don't like chunks. Easy to park on Shermer unless there is an event at the Village Green
